He refused to take a drug test when he got arrested for DUI so of course that's an automatic suspension on the license. Can a probation officer find out about your arrest in a different county?
Yes, the PO can find out and will find out eventually. Yes, your brother could be facing potential jail time on a...
The hospital blood screen came back negative. how to get the DUI charged dropped and never show up on any background test?
Have you hired him a lawyer yet?
I need to know if I can get a work permit, I have hearing on the 24th of May, and a buddy at work told me that I would not be able to scene I was licensed out of Fl, that it happened to his brother and they denied him a work permit as he was not licensed in Ga... I was here two days and got a DUI first offense on a Sunday so I had no time to change my info to Ga and they kept my Fl licenses, I do live here in Ga and work here... I am trying to see if this is true? I did pay a local lawyer here and he has not said anything about this to me, but getting him on the phone is a issue also, am I wasting my money on this lawyer??? I have 3 days until my hearing for it... I am the sole provider for my family due to wife's health issues and need to be able to get to work we have four children.
If you are currently on a fl drivers license, you would not be eligible for a work permit or limited permit in ga if...
The accident was not my fault-a lady hit me as I was turning left with a green turn signal at the light. She states that her light was green. There were no witnesses to the crime. I was asked if I had had anything to drink and stupidly said "yes." This is when I was given the breathalyzer. The police would not tell me what my breathalyzer result was at the accident scene & asked me to blow several times. They did not breathalyze the other party! At the jail I blew a .079 which is what is stated on my report. The police office stated that if I was in an accident then my BAC only had to be .04 to be charged with a DUI. I looked this up and this applies for commercial vehicles only. I was driving a car. How can I be convicted of a DUI with a .079? What should be my next step?
You need to consult with a lawyer right away. You can still be convicted if you blow under .08. The State can show that...
I was recently stopped for a DUI. The officer asked me to step out of the car for a field sobriety test and refused that. His comment was- fine, let's move on to the breathalyzer test. I refused that as well. He said that i would be arrested for DUI. Once back at the station, he said I would need to give a blood test. I told him about my medical issues and asked that he called my Dr. and gave him her number. She never came to draw my blood, and was sent in to general population. Did I do the right thing or should I have done all of the tests?
It sounds like it will be difficult for the state to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were under the influence...
This is confusing. I moved to FL from VA in 2005 and before I changed my license over I had 2 DUI's in Florida in 2005 and 2006, all while driving with my VA license. I never had a FL license and for some unknown reason VA DMV never became aware of the FL DUI's so my VA license is still valid. My FL driving priviliges were suspended for 5 years (but I never had a license) I paid all fines & performed community service etc. and the 5 years has passed. I still have the VA license but I now live in GA and want to transfer my license from VA to GA but I am unsure if GA is aware of the FL DUI's since I never had a FL license... sounds confusing but I guess I am asking if I can transfer my valid VA license to GA without the FL violations popping up... Thanks
Each state will be aware of the DUIs. It is no problem for one state to find the criminal records in another state....
The Court have cancel my court date four time and counting? I am in my second year of college, and I am just wondering this. If I have a test and I ask for a different date will the Court honor my request? This citation is about 15 month old?
The court may honor your request for a continuance, they may not. However, based upon the fact the case has been...
